This unique book presents a learn-by-doing introduction to geostatistics. Geostatistics provides the essential numerical tools for addressing research problems that are encountered in fields of study such as geology, engineering, and the earth sciences. Illustrating key methods through both theoretical and practical exercises, Solved Problems in Geostatistics is a valuable and well-organized collection of worked-out problems that allow the reader to master the statistical techniques for modeling data in the geological sciences. The book's scope of coverage begins with the elements from statistics and probability that form the foundation of most geostatistical methodologies, such as declustering, debiasing methods, and Monte Carlo simulation. Next, the authors delve into three fundamental areas in conventional geostatistics: covariance and variogram functions; kriging; and Gaussian simulation. Finally, special topics are introduced through problems involving utility theory, loss functions, and multiple-point geostatistics. Each topic is treated in the same clearly organized format. First, an objective presents the main concepts that will be established in the section. Next, the background and assumptions are outlined, supplying the comprehensive foundation that is necessary to begin work on the problem. A solution plan demonstrates the steps and considerations that have to be taken when working with the exercise, and the solution allows the reader to check their work. Finally, a remarks section highlights the overarching principles and noteworthy aspects of the problem. Additional exercises are available via a related Web site, which also includes data related to the book problems and software programs that facilitate their resolution. Enforcing a truly hands-on approach to the topic, Solved Problems in Geostatistics is an indispensable supplement for courses on geostatistics and spatial statistics a the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels.It also serves as an applied reference for practicing professionals in the geosciences.

Published in 2002, the first edition of Geostatistical Reservoir Modeling brought the practice of petroleum geostatistics into a coherent framework, focusing on tools, techniques, examples, and guidance. It emphasized the interaction between geophysicists, geologists, and engineers, and was received well by professionals, academics, and both graduate and undergraduate students. In this revised second edition, Deutsch collaborates with co-author Michael Pyrcz to provide an expanded (in coverage and format), full color illustrated, more comprehensive treatment of the subject with a full update on the latest tools, methods, practice, and research in the field of petroleum Geostatistics. Key geostatistical concepts such as integration of geologic data and concepts, scale considerations, and uncertainty models receive greater attention, and new comprehensive sections are provided on preliminary geological modeling concepts, data inventory, conceptual model, problem formulation, large scale modeling, multiple point-based simulation and event-based modeling. Geostatistical methods are extensively illustrated through enhanced schematics, work flows and examples with discussion on method capabilities and selection. For example, this expanded second edition includes extensive discussion on the process of moving from an inventory of data and concepts through conceptual model to problem formulation to solve practical reservoir problems. A greater number of examples are included, with a set of practical geostatistical studies developed to illustrate the steps from data analysis and cleaning to post-processing, and ranking. New methods, which have developed in the field since the publication of the first edition, are discussed, such as models for integration of diverse data sources, multiple point-based simulation, event-based simulation, spatial bootstrap and methods to summarize geostatistical realizations.

Geostatistics is essential for environmental scientists. Weather and climate vary from place to place, soil varies at every scale at which it is examined, and even man-made attributes – such as the distribution of pollution – vary. The techniques used in geostatistics are ideally suited to the needs of environmental scientists, who use them to make the best of sparse data for prediction, and top plan future surveys when resources are limited. Geostatistical technology has advanced much in the last few years and many of these developments are being incorporated into the practitioner’s repertoire. This second edition describes these techniques for environmental scientists. Topics such as stochastic simulation, sampling, data screening, spatial covariances, the variogram and its modeling, and spatial prediction by kriging are described in rich detail. At each stage the underlying theory is fully explained, and the rationale behind the choices given, allowing the reader to appreciate the assumptions and constraints involved.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to multiple-point geostatistics, where spatial continuity is described using training images. Multiple-point geostatistics aims at bridging the gap between physical modelling/realism and spatio-temporal stochastic modelling. The book provides an overview of this new field in three parts. Part I presents a conceptual comparison between traditional random function theory and stochastic modelling based on training images, where random function theory is not always used. Part II covers in detail various algorithms and methodologies starting from basic building blocks in statistical science and computer science. Concepts such as non-stationary and multi-variate modeling, consistency between data and model, the construction of training images and inverse modelling are treated. Part III covers three example application areas, namely, reservoir modelling, mineral resources modelling and climate model downscaling. This book will be an invaluable reference for students, researchers and practitioners of all areas of the Earth Sciences where forecasting based on spatio-temporal data is performed.

The Stanford Geostatistical Modeling Software (SGeMS) is an open-source computer package for solving problems involving spatially related variables. It provides geostatistics practitioners with a user-friendly interface, an interactive 3-D visualization, and a wide selection of algorithms. This practical book provides a step-by-step guide to using SGeMS algorithms. It explains the underlying theory, demonstrates their implementation, discusses their potential limitations, and helps the user make an informed decision about the choice of one algorithm over another. Users can complete complex tasks using the embedded scripting language, and new algorithms can be developed and integrated through the SGeMS plug-in mechanism. SGeMS was the first software to provide algorithms for multiple-point statistics, and the book presents a discussion of the corresponding theory and applications. Incorporating the full SGeMS software (now available from www.cambridge.org/9781107403246), this book is a useful user-guide for Earth Science graduates and researchers, as well as practitioners of environmental mining and petroleum engineering.

Based on a postgraduate course that has been successfully taught for over 15 years, the underlying philosophy here is to give students an in-depth understanding of the relevant theory and how to put it into practice. This involves going into the theory in more detail than most books do, and also discussing its applications. It is assumed that readers, students and professionals alike are familiar with basic probability and statistics, as well as the matrix algebra needed for solving linear systems; however, some reminders on these are given in an appendix. Exercises are integrated throughout, and the appendix contains a review of the material.
